    I had a Yildiz SPZ ME O/U catch my eye last night at Academy for 399. I had never heard of them so I did not really look at it too much. I have kept thinking about it though and from what I have read it has been really positive. I have been wanting an over and under for a long time. It is something I know I will not shoot much. It has been 5 years or more since I have shot my 12ga I have now. I just cannot see putting 1k-2k into something I will not get much use out of. I might shoot it at the PHA skeet range some, and maybe get back in to dove hunting with it. There is a chance I might get into shooting skeet more frequently.

    With that said does anyone have any experience with these? I do not want to buy something that will not hold up.

    Last time I handled one there were several burs on the receiver where the barrels mated. Give a real good check to the one you are getting to make sure you don't have any.

    My wife has a Yildiz in 20 ga. Nice little gun. Super tight lock up at first. Kind of annoying but broke in nicely. She does not shoot a lot so it was a good compromise.

    Bought a Yildiz in 20ga for my wife so that she can join me on the skeet field. Ended up selling it for she could not endure the recoil despite a Limb Saver recoil pad installed and using the lightest 20g loads I could find. Keep in mind that the Yildiz is primarily a field gun so it was pretty light in weight.

    Overall, I think highly of the fit/finish of the Yildiz when compared to far more expensive guns. I also never had any issues with the function of the just in the nearly 1000 rds I sent through it. For an occasional shooter that looks good and functions well, the Yildiz should satisfy your needs. Don't worry about warranty work if you do have a problem. Briley (top notch choke, sub-guage tube maker), in Houston, does their warranty work.

    As long as you find one that has no rubbing on the receiver face its a good buy, inspect the gun well. I have over 3000 shells through mine so far, they are good guns. if you can make the extra 300 dollars to get the $700 spz me special, do that. those things are incredible for the money.
